NYC's 49th Annual Village Halloween Parade

October 17, 2022 Mario Stewart

Of all the Halloween festivities this year, you won’t want to miss the 49th Annual Village Halloween Parade on October 31, 2022. The parade is a spooktacular family favorite that kicks off promptly at 7:00 PM. Here are the details!

This Year’s Parade Theme

For 2022, the Village Halloween Parade’s theme is “Freedom!” As the parade promotions suggest, “it’s a move; it’s a moment; feel it!” Parade contributors are looking to lift the spirits of the whole community! Last year was the parade's return post-COVID, and this year's festivities are looking to be bigger and better than ever! It's a New York City experience you don't want to miss this Halloween!

The Route

Find your best spot to watch this year’s parade anywhere from 6th Avenue to Canal to 16th. Arrive early to secure your best visibility of the parade performers, floats, and participants. Follow the parade on Instagram @nychalloween and share your parade adventures!

The parade is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM and will end roughly at 11:00 PM.

Grand Marshal

The Brooklyn United Marching Band is headlining. But fans can also expect special surprise guests, too! Join them this year in a “Special Selection” of this year’s big event while they play Jon Batiste’s “Freedom.”

After Party

Get to this year’s parade After Party at Webster Hall, or as it’s appropriately renamed this season, “Webster Hell.” 

If you can't attend the parade in person, you can certainly watch from the comfort of your own couch. The Village Halloween Parade is going to be telecast LIVE on NY1 from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM.
